Apple pushes into reality TV with new Apple Music show Planet of the Apps

Apple has kicked off the first series of its celebrity-led reality TV show Planet of the Apps.

The show sees app developers pitching their app ideas to a panel of celebrity judges in 60 seconds.

If the judges like the app, the developers are given more time to continue to pitch the app in hopes of a judge taking them on as an advisor.

The panel is made up of Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Alba, will.i.am and Gary Vaynerchuk. The show is hosted by radio presenter Zane Lowe.
